CIUDADES PARALELAS/PARALLEL CITIES Sep 15, 2013

"Hotel rooms, shopping centres, factories... these are functional places, not usually thought of as interesting to the outside eye. But without them life in the city would be uninhabitable. Their ubiquitous, parallel existences the world over mean these places are instantly recognisable, each modelled on similar rules but displaying a local face." - from the Ciuades Paralelas website

Seattle Gay Scene: Rimini Protokoll at On the Boards is perfect example of Art vs Technology = Art May 8, 2010

Michael Strangeways:

Best Before is that odd conundrum/enigma of a "play" that's not really a "play" in the traditional sense of the word, but in reality, and in it's completed state, it manages to BECOME a play, meaning that you meet characters, go on a journey and experience complicated human emotions and feeling. There IS growth, and warmth, and fear, and humor, and birth, and death, and longing, and love, and hate and all the other emotions we need to feel/experience in order to be fully realized human beings.

The SunBreak: Rimini Protokoll Takes on the Game of Life...Choices May 7, 2010

Michael van Baker:

All I knew about Rimini Protokoll's Best Before show at On the Boards (through May 9, tickets $24) was that it somehow involved video-game controllers and would last two hours. This was anxiety-producing for me, a Zaxxon low-scorer, but I needn't have worried; I spent most of the evening with a goofy grin on my face, and giggles and yelps of laughter were widespread.

Comments on <i>Best Before</i> May 7, 2010

When the show first started, I was psyched.   Live people!   A stage!   I liked the premise & everything started well.   I was disappointed that one particular friend of mine had been unable to attend, because he develops games for phones & absolutely lives for these types of concepts.

The first half hour was great, and the audience was enjoying the show as much as I was.   It was novel, easy to participate, and showed promise.   The following hour seemed to be the same as the first half hour, but with the novelty worn away.   There were a few inte

Teen Tix: "Gaming the Play" May 7, 2010

From Monet C:

"Starting with a solo guitar with a coffee house vibe, this play/video game soars after the first five minutes and continually amazes with the twists and turns of our choices. It is like nothing that I have ever seen before!"
